in black enthusiasm for obama than in 2008. >> voting for obama? >> yeah! >> reporter: but aside from the usual support democrats reveal on, the series reveal one additional motivation. >> this pat has a deep hatred for white people. >> this man hates this country. >> reporter: a simmering anger many blacks feel about how they believe the president has been treated. >> we seen that governor put her finger in his face. when you have seen somebody do the president like that? >> i think it is a deep-seeded racism that we have not yet confronted. >> reporter: there will be people that hear that and say, you know, there they go again. >> yes. >> reporter: when you hear that mantra, let's take america back, what do you think they're talking about? >> i really think they're saying, let's take the paradigm back to the way it used to be. a good old boy's system at the country club are drinking around palmers. >> reporter: if the filmmakers have tapped into black anger, they share it. >> angry? yeah, i'm angry about that. there's never been a president who has been treated as shabbily as this p
the democrats aren't losing, they're actually kicking butt in early voting. according to an internal obama campaign document today that is exactly the case. here's what that document reveal reveals. in florida over a third of expected voters have already voted. as you can see early voters 50% voting for president obama. obama, 44% for mitt romney. election day that means mitt romney has to get 53% of the vote in florida if he's going to win. so that is a pretty hefty tag to run up. that's all according to the obama campaign. in iowa over a third of voters have already voted there. and among those early voters, you can see 64% of those are supporting barack obama. 35% of them are supporting mitt romney. and that means that mitt romney is going to need to win 59% of election-day voters. in north carolina, nearly half of all ballots have already been cast. and of those who have already been cast, 58% of those early voters favor the president. 41% of those favor mitt romney. so mitt romney is going to need to win 57% of north carolina on election day. we're seeing that pattern play out in the
friends, he can actually swing any votes towards obama is ludicrous. in the business that you are in, it's not a good thing. why would he cook the books if he knows he is wrong. he is going to look like a slub. >> i was going to say that. >> he didn't steal your thunder. he made no sense at all. he is a flawed. dick morris is the world's greatest genius. i think he is adorable. we have great conversations. >> jill dobson and why she became a spokeswoman. but first, can you not do this story? yes, because we're doing the other story. so instead we'll do the other one. [ laughter ] ♪ ♪ >> will the country burn if there is no second term? all right. let's start over here. ooflg radio host that if romney defeats obama that there will be mobs and bloodshed. he took a cue following hurricane sandy and claimed it was just a preview if obama loses the election. have a look at the rest of the rant. >> people out there saying governor romney is going to take all this away from us. governor romney is going to take away our lollipops. barack obama the election has been stolen from us. >> good to
to vote you. i need you the next three days to see neighbors and maybe ones that go by with obama signs, let's talk this through a bit. you see president obama came into office with so many promises that he has fallen so far short. >> heather: that was president obama and governor romney speaking to crowds of supporters today. just three days before the election. they are all making their final push on the campaign trail as the clock ticks down. both candidates looking for the edge. some sort of edge that will help pull them ahead in a hotly contested race. editor for campaign and elections he joins us now. thank you for joining us. we mentioned this already. it comes down to the magic number of 270 electoral votes. what does each party have to do to reach that magic number at the finish line? >> i mean at this point, this is really about, both campaigns really getting their get out the vote operations into full swing in the last couple of days. this is what the campaigns have been planning for logistically figuring out where they need folks. we have heard a lot of spin from both campai
of an edge as the obama campaign had back in 2008. early voting on the hole is going to skew to the side of the democrats. republicans tend to been election day. it comes down to which twoud situation is humming on tuesday and which voters are really enthused. >> heather: romney has added another state into the mix, pennsylvania, hoping to end the streak of five contests where the democratic candidate prevailed and 10 percentage points in the latest polls show him with a slight edge over governor romney. how realistic is pennsylvania? >> i still think pennsylvania is a strep for the romney campaign. that being said, president obama and his campaign has spent the last week trying to convince everybody that the move into pennsylvania by the romney campaign is a complete head shake. i am not convinced how tough it is for mitt romney. you notice that bill clinton will be in pennsylvania on monday. aside from president obama the former president is the best surrogate his campaign has. bill clinton is going to be in pennsylvania on monday, the fact that obama campaign has spent more money on t
in battleground states suggest their bank of obama votes means romney will have to win on election day well more than half the votes in key states to win. but the president is not relying solely on early voting or even on this new rekindled bipartisan pitch. in this state alone, diane, president obama and his allies have run 16,000 more ads than romney and his allies. and if that's not enough for you, on monday, president obama will be back here in ohio with bruce springsteen. diane? >> okay, thank you, jake. >>> and also tonight, the latest in our brand new daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final sprint. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the campaign plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. romney capturing images of his staff sneaking a nap, as romney faces to the finish. in just the last 24 hours, virginia -- >> virginia, we're going to win on november 6th, i'll tell you that. >> reporter: wisconsin. >> god bless the people of wiscon

>> do you see much ticket splitting? a vote for obama or romney and then vote for republican or democrat for the senate? >> i think we are a more polarized nation. >> ticket splitting would be good because there is an interesting theory that it would be helpful to romney if the democrats kept control of the senate by a vote or two because it would allow romney to tell the crazies in his own party that i have to make a deal with the democrats. >> well -- >> back at bain? >> i'm saying, if elected, it might not be a tragedy. >> the republicans are not only going to keep the house, and they all will keep most of their majority. this is one place where redistricting and a late money from super pacs has made a difference. >> crystal ball, colby. >> i see barack obama -- i talked to a former republican chairman, could judiciously looks at the numbers, and i looked at his numbers, i see barack obama winning electoral college by 286 votes. >> could it be possible for him to win the electoral college and lose the popular vote? >> i understand it is mathematically possible. >> how likely is it? >>
or more in a major rally in ohio, mr. romney is using president obama's own rhetoric about voting against him. the president suggested that his supporters should vote for revenge mitt romney in colcalifornia spring and dubuque threw that back at the president. >> today president obama it was yesterday, you probably heard about he asked supporters to vote for revenge. i ask the american people to vote for love of country. >> mr. romny -- mr. romney said that over and over and over again in an attempt to cast mr. obama and his presidency as one of division and suggest he will unite the country and reach across the aisle in a bipartisan way. the romney complaint is that president obama made promiseless of hope and change and couldn't deliver. he couldn't because of grid lock that he caused. he simply doesn't have an administration to get things done. >> analyst said it is it like a courtroom where attorneys make the closing arguments. it is getting last, but we are hearing new lineups. >> that's right. and when you have the campaigns packing their calendars as busy as they have in 73 hours a
of citizens can participate in the process and every person can exercise the right to vote. the obama campaign thanks the republican governor when he did that and then with a boost from early voting, democrat barack obama won the state of florida and the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor rick scott decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expanding voting, the new one decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. long, long, long lines for early voting in polls places across florida except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures ever since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the league of women voters asked the governor to do something about the long lines. they asked him to add a day of voting to open the polls on the last sunday
the vote in particular. that's why you're seeing david axelrod making a bet that if president obama does not win michigan and minnesota and pennsylvania, he will shave off his mustache. he's betting his face. that's how confident he is. because this is the time in the campaign when you're supposed to project confidence. on the republican side, it's been a little more complicated. after a bad week of polling for mitt romney, top staffers held a conference call with reporters that enumerated their reasons why they see mitt romney as a shoe in despite the polling. they suggested their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions
're going to find out. can obama win re-election with a historically small share of the white vote which basically means will the nonwhite vote share of the electorate rise to new levels that will allow him to survive, like latino support and black support. obama people say hey turn out among blacks and la zwroins will be as high as in 2008 and republicans saying no it won't. do you have a sense who is right in that dispute? >> increasingly what you've seen a department coalition over the years that has been built on african-americans, hispanic, women. we see the huge gap, gender gap between barack obama and mitt romney. and some white men and increationly you see republican party that's the majority, large majority of white men and a gap on the other side. so that is a test, i think we'll see. one of the questions about all the polls we've seen are the models they are using correct. is it going to be 75% white electorate? is it 77%? 72%? is the hispanic share of the electorate going to be 7%, 10%, 12%? so i think we'll get those answers to those questions. an interest ago side to that s
-46. this week to reports 19 peent of those surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney y 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 points and now he's losing it by seven. that is more than enough to flip the election lou: two thin, if we can go back to your bard, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vote in 2008 that ratio was over two times -- two tmes. >> almost two to one. and we are talking here about less than a 5-4 margin. we are talking about 98,00 difference on the base, and this number will continue to grow. there will be probably, the republicans are probably going to narrow that gap between the two to somewhere around 85 or 90,000 votes. and i repeat, on election day is a starkly that republicans have carried the vote, even when president obama was winning the state in 2008, he was losing the election they vote. and these republican numbers are a sigof the ground game in ohio that is strong. the young guy who is runnin
on election day and cast ballots. so the question is how many of these people are actually voting for obama? how many are voting for romney? obviously we don't know. indications are from our poll is that romney is winning the key demographic or the key swing voters or the key swing state, and that's the independent voters. he is marginally winning them. he is also doing well with north florida democrats, certain crossover democrats, rural democrats. he pulls about 16% of them on our poll, where as obama only pulls about 5% republican support. so that crossover appeal so to speak of romney's in florida and the independent edge that he appears to have is making a difference. but good campaigns can change polls. they're not changed by polls. and the question is who turns out their voters and who does it best. we're going to find out today. today is the last day of early voting. and then on tuesday that's when the ball game is. >> mark murray, let me bring you in. both men have these op-eds in "the wall street journal." we have the headlines. real progress, but we're not done. that's from the p
after four states in swing states claiming the votes are going to obama and should be going to romney. >> because they know they are losing. >> jon: let's get back to the coverage. if president obama loses what is the media theme going to be? >> i think a lot of people, andrew sullivan, if you only voted, daily beast. if you only voted obama once you have to vote for him twice. i think some version of obviously the american people and alan is ready with that script. they bubbled up and he lost. think that is what he'll say. >> jon: if romney loses? >> it's going to be further indication that the republican party is dying, it's been taken over by tea party extremists. that the party is out of touch and demographically ill-suited. >> the problem with that. >> the rob with that, last year the religious right had taken over had taken over the republican party. now, it's the tea party but before that was the religious right. that has imploded because you don't see governor romney using abortion or gay marriage decisively. >> they became moderate, the religious right haven't taken over gove
what, obama's margn was 262,000 in no way, mot of it fueled by a huge turnout in early voting, and that he lost th election day voting to maake romney. so this is not a good sign commend i have been watching this trend for a week. the margins are getting bigger. on tuesday it was 150 some odd thousand. now it is larger than what obama won the state by a in 2008. this is a bad sign for president obama, and we see it reflected in the polls as well. if you take a look, allup says 15 percent of the people had voted early. they were breaking for romney by 52-46. this week to reports 19 percent of those surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney by 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 pois and now he's losing it by sven. that is more than enough to flip the election. lou: two things, if we can g back to your board, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vote in 2008 that ratio was over two times -- two times. >> a
. >> the hurricane damage won't affect the electoral vote but it will take some electorals from barack obama. >> it could drive up the popular vote. >> i would say a popular vote split remains small. i must say on the point that amy raised about bipartisan in the promise of bringing the two sides together, that has got to be the one promise that has so thoroughly been proven empty for two presidencies in a row. remember george w. bush was a uniter not a divider. we saw what happened there. and barack obama comes in with the same kind of promise and the political sciences say george bush was the most polarized presidency. it's a condition of life and what obama's hoping is that republicans if he's re-elected sort of collapse a little bit in exhaustion and work with him in a short period of time. >> and regardless if it's a popular electoral split, it's going to be close. almost 50% of the country will feel disenchanted with whoever is elected. and the fault lines will be quite amazing. >> let's talk about where we were last week. it felt like there was momentum in mitt romney's direction. whe
. >> blacks can gain success and prosperity by voting out obama and the democrats and voting in the republican. >> cenk: i just don't think that's going to work. then later should we start thinking about floodgates? is climate change so serious we should design around it. >> a harbor pivoting up when needed to block the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart. osaka,{^l"^^}-for-tore. >> cenk: a new super pac has convinced that they have a new way to get african-americans to vote for republicans. >> i have a major revelation for black americans. it is a big lie that democrats are for black americans and republicans are against black americans. abraham lincoln who freed the slaves was a republican. republicans founded the naacp. republicans passed the civil rights
his tax is does bother me. host: you are going to vote for president obama? why so? caller: i do think he has tried very hard. i used to work in the health field. and i know how much people are so worried about government covering their health-care costs. i am on medicare now, certainly the government takes my. when i was working, you have no idea how many times, because i was the person who put the insurance payments into the computer when i came to the hospital, and you have no idea how the insurance companies to turn down a thing this. host: even though they make their comments known about the presidential race, we are focusing on cost and said races in your state. a couple of stories, at this one out of new york when it comes to hurricane sandy, federal money do not up to states and hurricane aftermath, the first trickle of federal funds start to go out. 29 million to rebuild highways. $30 million to hire temporary workers to help with the cleanup. it is certainly to the multibillion dollar bill for the government. the federal office has 7.5 billion to spend. an additional 5 billio
. >> makes it very narrow for mitt romney. if president obama wins ohio he's at 261 electoral votes based on our battleground map. if mitt romney gets virginia and florida he's stuck to 248. new hampshire where he owns a home but the president probably a finger on the scale now we're at 261-261 and we've been talking all along about the midwest and importance of ohio, wisconsin and iowa and the necessity for mitt romney to win two of those three. look at that right there. you got those 16 electoral votes between those two and if somehow mitt romney or barack obama were to pick up wisconsin, boom you've got president obama at 271 and even if mitt romney were to get iowa he's only at 267, craig the importance of the industrial midwest. >> all right. you mentioned florida. let's dig a little bit deep near to florida. based on that poll neck and neck race. if president obama, if he does not win florida what does that mean for his path to victory? >> of course the president still can win even if mitt romney were to win florida and virginia and again it all comes down to ohio. because like we j
? barack obama and joe biden, or mitt romney and paul ryan? or will it be a tie? 269 electrical votes, to 269 electoral votes. pat buchanan? >> the heart says romney/ryan, and head says too close to call, but i'm going to predict that romney/ryan will win all the 11 states of the old con fed racy, and barely win ohio and colorado, and he'll win with just over 270 electoral votes. >> obama biden will win with over 300 electoral votes, it will be a democratic senate, warren will win in massachusetts, and democrats will have 54 seats in the senate. >> i have to say i think this country really needs a change in leadership, given what's happened in the last four years, but i believe that owe -- obama will be reelected, it will be a close race, and ohio will make the difference, if romney carries ohio -- >> quickly -- >> close, i give obama the edge. i'm going to say 260. win withy and ryan will wi280 electoral votes. bye bye!
to show obama with a, some advantages in the electoral votes, so, i think both sides are looking at the polls and seeing hope. >> dan, let's step back briefly here, how important is this election? we always say the elections are the most important in x years, but i think this is the most important election since ronald reagan certainly in terms of setting the direction of the country and validating or not the huge expansion of government that barack obama has promoted in the first term. >> i agree, paul. i mean, historically the country is divided in the past century between the private economy and the public government. and there's always been a division of duties there. barack obama is trying to take spending from 20% of grosse pointe woods over the last 25 years up to about 23%. >> paul: for the starters. >> for starters and plus, make the federal government the lead role in the direction of the economy in a way that no previous president has ever done and i think that that is the decision the american people have to decide is whether they want washington, the federal governme
vote. >> paul: dampen that. >> and i spoke to a pollster not working for the obama campaign and agreed with dan's sentiment, turnout was an issue for democrats, enthusiasm is down, but also says that he thinks this allowed obama, even though he missed some days on the campaign trail, allowed him to get out there and show some leadership, some bipartisanship, thanks to the new jersey governor, republican chris christie be being at his side for a couple of days. >> paul: i want to ask you, new jersey residents, and generally a fan of governor chris christie, what do you make of this embrace of the governor with the president? >> well, our colleague peggy noonan, says you want to keep your friends close, but your president closer. i think certainly, mr. christy is dealing with had an emergency and trying to get help as soon as possible. there is a sense that these kind of situations will make people turn and embrace big government, but you're already seeing a lot of of flaws in the federal response, fema not getting a lot of these generators that they promised online quickly, so, i don't
because the obama people told us early voting and ground game and voting offices was the sea. carl rove said if you look at absentee ballots it is favorable to mitt romney than obama and michael baron said mitt romney will win in a land slide. they tend to be in places for mccain and not for obama. it is hard for me to know what is going on. >> you and me both. one thing that was interesting when i listened to the president talking about early voting trend and talk up in ohio and the democratic camp is saying just to compensate for the early voting disadvantage mitt romney is out in ohio. i don't know how that extrap polate this out. he would have to get 59 percent to win the state on election day. how do you see ohio? >> i was in hamilton county, cincinnati and delaware county on monday. everywhere i went. it was enthusiasm for romney . feeling that hamilton county, cincinnati, won 28,000 votes for obama and 12 to 20,000 votes for mitt romney and if that happens you talk about a land slide. it is almost impossible for obama to suffer a 50,000 vote turn around in hamilton county and win
barack obama, we will burn this mother. [ bleep ] down. >> number six. >> if you vote early you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry that's not accurate. >> o.h. god i love that. it's so fun. >> yes, it's not that fun. our city has got a way better calling response thing. new york! yeah. >> number two. >> early voters will receive a $5 million donation from donald trump. >> mr. attorney general, as i remember, mitt romney wrote that op ed that said the gm should go through a managed bankruptcy, which they did which the president says that's essentially what car industry. mr. attorney general. >> what is that related to? >> what. >> a deal that went down before the storm ever happened. if bloomberg gets this date, you're going to come out and endorse president obama and then tie it to climate change, they have to go through this. that was a back door deal because no one in their right mind would go out yesterday and say i'm endorseing president obama because of his climate change stance. that's crazy town. >> thethe number one good thing about voting early, ladies and gentlemen. >> ho
campaign has invested heavily in early voting, president obama had a very significant lead among those voters, so the romney camp is going to be all about election day. that's their -- that's their long ball but it could not be closer. every vote matters here in ohio. both camps doing everything they can to get out their vote on tuesday. >> every vote matters everywh e everywhere. get out and vote, everybody. vote early. we'll talk to you again at 1:00 eastern time so i'll see you again soon. thanks for dropping by. a smaller more efficient government or an invisible hand to assist and protect those in need? president obama and mitt romney, guys, they have very fundamentally different visions of government and what it should do for you. it is capitalism on trial. which version will you choose? 5. and everyone, but her... likes 50% more cash. but, i have an idea. do you want a princess dress? yes how about some cupcakes? yes lollipop? yes! do you want an etch a sketch? yes! do you want 50% more cash? no you got talent. [ male announcer ] the capital one cash rewards card. with a 50% an
, last week you said that the latino vote is being undercounted in the polls and that president obama actually has a bigger lead than everyone thinks. i want to get anna's take on that one. >> you know, we could spend all morning here discussing the skewed polls. if they look good from my side, the democrats think it look s skewed. i think we're going to go into a nose spin and we don't want to suffer from political schizophrenia. my advice is that we don't obsess about polls because it really could lead to temporary insanity between now and november 6th. i just saw two polls last night from florida. one mitt romney six points up on barack obama, and the second one, which came out five minutes later, had president obama two points up on mitt romney. it's a very tricky discussion. >> it certainly is. a little bit of temporary insanity is okay as we get close to election day. maria, do you still stand by your prediction? >> absolutely. and frankly, a lot of analysts agree with that. if you look at what of george bush's own pollsters said when he was president and running was that no rep
